7:04am
but it is not the new union market that opened up fan fair about a month ago. we want to be clear on the difference between the two buildings. the other one is not far from here. we can see smoke coming off the top of the building. that is steam which just goes to show you how intense this fire was last night. we were able to catch some of the scene last night when things were really getting going. firefighters got here around 10:30. and they went in to the first floor and then things got a little dicey you might say. because it is a warehouse, it can be a very high risk situation. here's what the deputy chief had to say about that. >> warehouses are dangerous for a lot of reason. one of them is they are kept secure. they are
7:05am
hard to get in. the second thing is that there's a lot of materials to look in a very small space. if a fire does start, it can spread very quickly and that appears to be what happened here. the fire spread quickly and very challenging to put out. >> so what they had to do was evacuate 50 firefighters. it was 15 very tense minutes until they got them out and reassessed and attack the fire from the outside. just until about 3:30 in the morning to put it out and get it under control. they had everything locked down and waiting for day lights to get investigators in there and figure out how extensive the damage is and what caused this fire. >> thank you. >> we are still following sandy's aftermath up and down the east coast. the storm is blamed for more than 70 deaths and more than 6 million people are still living without power. there's some small signs of

[ starts car ] were you eating smoked sausage in here? no! no. could have gotten me one. i did. try the unmistakable flavor of dunkin' donuts' smoked sausage breakfast sandwich. it's deliciously irresistible. hurry in today. the smoked sausage breakfast sandwich is only at dunkin' donuts for a limited time. grab one today. my name is julian bond. i know a little something about fighting for what's right and just. maryland's gay and lesbian families share the same values and they should share in the right to marry. i believe people of faith understand this isn't about any one religious belief. it's about protecting the civil right to make a lifelong commitment to the person you love. join me in supporting question 6. it's the right thing to do.
7:14am
would ban all abortions and contraception
7:15am
seemed a bit extreme. so i looked into it. turns out, romney doesn't oppose contraception at all. in fact, he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest, or to save a mother's life. this issue's important to me, but i'm more concerned about the debt our children will be left with. i voted for president obama last time, but we just can't afford four more years. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. welcome back. it's 7:15. a 15-year-old killed in a tragic accident. christina morris was hit by a car while walking to high school yesterday morning. this happened at a busy intersection. police believed the driver had the right of way. grief counselors were brought in

7:30am
from election day -- and for virginia's u.s. senate candidates, it's the final stretch. the latest poll show tim cain holding a lead up 50 to 46. that lead is smaller than it was weeks ago. we sat down with george allen to talk about cam ads to what's on his i pod. >> did you watch last week when we had george allen on? talked about a lot of different issues. and also talk about personal things as well. not too personal. but with five days to go now and it's been a year and a half at least. >> 19 months. >> 19 months. are you happy with where your campaign is right now? have you done everything you can do? >> we've run the race i wanted to run. this is my 8th race. you want to put
7:31am
your own -- make sure people understand who you are and why you are running. talking about economic access. a congress that's so gridlock that people won't compromise. we've run that kind of race. >> the last two seem to deal with that theme working together. also talking about your record, your past if you will. your work overseas. seems that's very important . >> it is. i have -- i kind of got started in public service 30 years ago and that put me on a path of trying to serve others. whether it was a civil rights attorney, this is a path i've been on. and the last two ads i don't talk about my opponent. what i've done and what i hope to do.
7:32am
that main theme of let's bring people together to find results, i did it as a nonpart son mayor and republican legislative leaders. >> at the level in the senate, do you think you would be able to work with a romney white house? >> i would be able to work with anyone who is president and i would consider any president my partner. i'm a supporter of president obama. but my first three years, president bush was president. we disagreed on a number of issues, i would never have defined myself as a destruction. we worked together on rail to dulles. when the president wanted governors to stand up and support his desire to get a line item veto in terms of the budget, i supported the president on that. i will always look to partner with the president. >> when governor allen came out of the gate with energy.
7:33am
talked about producing our own energy and coal and how you were not a friend to the coal industry in virginia. what is your stand on renewable energy drilling off the coast? >> i did an energy plan when i was governor that called for drilling off the coast. that happened when i was governor. i permitted a work very hard to a state-of-the-art facility in southwest virginia that's just opened in the last month. george allen never did that. i did. and when he says i'm not a friend of paul, you can look at a $1.8 billion investment. that i had a lot to do with. so i understand that he's going to make those attacks. the difference is i support alternatives and he does not. he ridicules wind and solar and i say they are the energy
7:34am
investments of the future. 66,000 virginia i can't know. we should be selling them rather than buying them. >> do you have a position on the limit to drilling say off the coast? it does seem like he's positioning himself as the pro energy candidate. >> well, he is but he was in the senate for 6 years with two republican houses. what happened in terms of energy off the coast? nothing. we put a plan in place when i was governor that called for energy first exploration off shore. i support a bill that is co sponsored by warner and web that would allow energy off ore shore. that's an important point. but i have a track record in this area as governor whether it's renewables or using all of our resources in
7:35am
virginia. >> before the break, i want to talk about job creation and taxes. no matter who you talked to, these seem to be on the mind all across the country. what is the plan here? how folks are going to get back to work. >> short-term, invest in infrastructure. that's why i fought so hard for rail. light rail and other key passenger rail and freight rail projects. second, we got to win the brainpower race. my main belief is win the talent race, win the economic race. prek, k-12. and level the playing field for small businesses. so many small businesses, pay federal corporate income tax. we have to level the playing field. if you do those things, you grow the economy and figure out the right way to get our budget in balance. there's a right way to do it and a wrong way to do it.
7:36am
we have different approaches. >> in the last 30 seconds and i will carry this over but the tax issue. that is the big elephant in the room. there's that ad out the $17,000. >> which everybody has debunked. let the bush tax cuts expire for people who make more than $500,000. if you let that tax cut expire over $500,000, you raise $500 billion over the next 10 years and that's the way we can avoid cuts. very simple plan. my opponent opposes it. that makes the deficit worse without helping the economy. >> you mentioned defense cuts. when we come back we'll talk about other issues. >> okay. >> we're going to take a quick break. we'll be right back with more. more. anncr: every president inherits challenges.
7:37am
7:38am
few have faced so many. four years later... our enemies have been brought to justice. our heroes are coming home. assembly lines are humming again. there are still challenges to meet. children to educate. a middle class to rebuild. but the last thing we should do is turn back now. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message.
7:39am
welcome back. we are again sitting down with former virginia governor tim kaine talking about some of the issues. five days to go. before i ask you about sequestration, no one would argue that to win this seat you have to win virginia and the hampton roads area. you are fighting for the whole state. what is the whole message for some of the virginiaians we
7:40am
don't talk about? >> i served statewide. it's so diverse. i have friends that are high tech execs, farmers in south side. i live in richmond where i was mayor. it's an amazing state. in this race, what surprised me is wherever i go and throughout the race, same three issues. how we're going to grow the economy. and how can we find common ground. virginiaians understand if our ideas are perfect. but democrats won't vote for our idea. congress wants to get in the way of the president. it's really about putting people in congress. who have got an inclination that says they can listen and compromise, they can disagree but maintain a relationship so you agree on something else tomorrow. that's the issue that comes up again and again. >> with that said let's talk
7:41am
about sequestration. the defense spending, some say it would be devastating if these cuts were put into place. >> it would be. >> your opponent was quoted you as saying this is the right thing to do. we heard make a deal to save the budget or default for the first time. george allen. bob mcdonald who was a veteran and i and erik and president obama and john and the u.s. chamber of commerce, default is not an option even if the deal is ugly. mcdonald was asked you were on tim kaine's side. the result would be an international fiscal collapse. i did support a deal rather than a default but don't support defense cuts. a very specific plan to avoid them. we can
7:42am
avoid these cuts, let the bush tax cuts expire as they were intended to expire. fix medicare so we can negotiate over the price of prescription drugs and take away the tax subsidies. if you do those two things, now you don't need to find a trillion dollars of cuts. you need to find $235 billion of targeted savings over 10 years and everyone says we can do that. the secretary says we can find savings but don't give us a number that's too ugly or make us save on the wrong things rather than the right things. i put a specific plan on the table. each of these elements are compromises. now is the time for compromise and specifics. not just shaking your fist and saying these cuts will be bad. let's solve them. >> it's well documented that you and george allen are friends. >> it's a small club. the governors of virginia , there's
7:43am
only 9 of us. and i know george and susan, his children and he knows ann and my kids. we are very different in our political philosophies. but personally we've gotten along fine. >> what do you like about him? >> one thing i like about george is a lot of people treat campaigning as if they are under going root canal. always out on the trail and out there enjoying making his case. as sincere as i am in mine. just are sharp differences in terms of the way we think the commonwealth should go. >> we talked about the lightning round. favorite movie? >> citizen cane or chinatown. >> old school. >> yeah. >> how about music? >> all right. it's been a pleasure talking to you. five days we'll be right here watching.
7:44am
hopefully you can get some rest. okay. now, what are we doing? weather. one former weather boy. and one current weather boy. good morning guys. >> good morning. thank you governor for being on the show. let me say about this about the weather. the sun coming up, i'd take hope from that. >> you should. going to get sunshine today. not going to be a terrible day. the theme is clouds around. left overs with sandy spinning out there. kind of a mix of clouds, sunshine working in and cool highs in the 50s. definitely bring a jacket. want to remind you we're falling back saturday night early sunday morning. extra hour to snooze. but the sun will be setting an hour earlier starting sunday afternoon. the sunsets at about 5:10 sunday afternoon. that will be the big change. let's talk local weather and we're doing fine. we have a few light
7:45am
showers across the viewing area. most of the area in on the cloud cover with a few breaks. could be a few sprinkles north and west. and even a few flurries well out to the west early this morning. all right. looking at our forecast highs today. that's cool for this time of year. it is november 1st but in the 60s for the first day of november. 55 in washington. upper 40s north and west. so definitely jacket weather . the trend is more and more sunshine over the next couple days. >> thank you, sir. julie standing by to tell us what's going on, on the roads. what's happened this week, each day more and more traffic. >> yeah, obviously a lot of folks that were able to stay put. we needed them to do on monday and tuesday because of the storm and because of the clean up. but you are right. as the week continues to build so do the accidents. we have problems out here. we have some
7:46am

a group of people walked out on that stage and told us that the plant is now closed and all of you are fired... i looked both ways, i looked at the crowd, and...we all just lost our jobs. we don't have an income. mitt romney made over 100 million dollars by shutting down our plant and devastated our lives. turns out that when we built that stage, it was like building my own coffin, and it just made me sick.

8:04am
the focal point is the inter loop of the beltway over to 355. the accident sits in the far right lane. that's a check of your fox 5 on time traffic. >> thanks, julie. we are following sandy's aftermath up and down the east coast. the storm is blamed for more than 70 deaths and more than 6 million people are still living without power. but there are some small signs of progress in hard hit new york. today wall street, ark airports are open. and limited subway service began at 6:00 this morning. in the meantime, new york police officers are checking cars coming in to new york on the four bridges over the east river. this is the scene at the brooklyn bridge early this morning in an effort to cut down on gridlock. the mayor announced cars had to have three people in them in order to be let into the city. and we are learning about the deadly
8:05am
impact sandy had when she dumped all that snow in west virginia. state officials say five people have died because of the blizzard that dropped more than 2 feet of snow. one of the people who died is republican candidate for the state house. he was killed in a traffic accident. meantime, closer to the metro area, a contractor killed when a tree fell on him while working on homeward road. in the meantime, two ambulance strike teams headed out to new jersey this morning to help out with the recovery efforts there. each team consists of five ambulances and a supervisor. they will assist in things like patient evacuations and 911 emergency responses. >> while our area braced for widespread damage and power outages from sandy, the storm left its mark farther north. pepco and other power companies
8:06am
say they were well prepared for sandy. but did we just luck out this time around? joining us by phone is marcus. i have a new story here that says as of 9:15 last night pepco had restored power to all customers who lost service; is that right? >> that's correct. we want to stay humble. there's still damage to the north. but we were really fortunate. very prepared for this storm. we had a lot of lead time. that helped with our restoration effort. >> how many were without power this time around? >> this storm, we restored 130,000 outages. during a snapshot at the height of the storm we had 44,000 customers out. and that breaks down to
8:07am
11,000 out in the district. 24,000 in montgomery county. that was our highest and 9,000 customers in prince georges county. >> i do know this storm was different and took that turn. so it didn't impact us as strongly as we thought it might. what do you attribute the fact you were able to restore service so quickly this time around? >> we're really in the third year of reliability plan. tree trimming and hardening of our system. we also drill for this. we do a lot of planning and just work when we don't have a storm so that we're ready to respond to events like this. just a lot of preparation. we were able to get a lot of materials in place. hold meetings. just to really get organized by this storm. nice to have those extra days to prepare and plan. certainly always on the look out
8:08am
for an event. >> and you know, since you say that, i should note as you've mentioned you had several days to planned for this. the duracho, you did not. that was more of a freak event that happened suddenly. tell me, can we say that is maybe the new pepco? i know every storm is different but do you think we can expect more of this without unrealistically raising people's expectation snz. >> yeah. i think we are very committed to making sure our customers are happy and have their power restored. we want to restore our customers as quickly and safely as possible. events like this are tests of our planning, of our prophecies. so it's nice to see the changes and this work is making an impact. we have to keep our head down and keep working.
8:09am
we're going to stay focused. we're going to continue to work our reliability enhancement plan and continue to drill. and continue to stay alert and prepared for the next event. >> mr. beal, we ask a lot of questions when things go wrong. we figured we should ask questions when things went right. we appreciate it. that's marcus, spokes person . right now the utility is reporting more than 19,000 outages. about 4,000 of those in montgomery, prince georges, calbert. joining us is pg and e vice president. how are you? >> good morning. >> the latest update from you. is my number right ? about 19,000 without power? >> yeah it is. 19,000 without power. we've restored more than 90% within roughly the first 24
8:10am
to 36 hours. and we're going to keep at it. we've got a ton of crews in here. just to follow the lead of what you were saying before, we had the opportunity this time to bring in crews. we had asked for about 3,000 out of state lineman and tree contractors. we got close to 2,000. we actually have a couple flowing in but not too many. and we're making significant progress. i think the customers are seeing that. the differentiator here is to let the network in place work to the advantage of the restoration effort. >> i want to ask you if you all are able to estimate when power will be restored? and here's why i'm asking, i have a co worker without power. he thinks now maybe he has power. but he called yesterday and the person he talked to said we don't know.
8:11am
>> yeah, i'm sure said a little differently. but we were still assessing the damage on our system yesterday. we did announce last night that we would have the vast majority of our customers restored by tomorrow night and isolated outages that extend into the weekend just because of the destructive nature of the storm. what's important to understand here is we're trying to be conscious of the customer's expectations. in a storm like this, for us to come out with information that may or may not be accurate and when i say that, it's not the desire to get accurate information. it's almost like a surgeon. you can go out, look at the patient and say it's going to take us about a day to restore all service. but when you get in to the operation of restoration and find things you couldn't see. whether it's equipment that doesn't have visible damage but yet is damaged, those one day
8:12am
operations can turn in to two or three. unless we have absolute certainty or high confidence in individual outage jobs, we will not be providing that information to customers particularly since we know we're at this point where we're going to be wrapping this up for the vast majority of customers by tomorrow evening. >> very good. i think that's what people want to hear. they want to have some kind of estimate. there you go. vice president with b g and e. thank you for taking the time this morning. >> still ahead at 8:00, up in flames, a wholesale warehouse burns overnight. update on the investigation. first though, back on the campaign trail, president obama tries to make up for lost time and mitt romney heads back to battleground virginia. it is 8:12. we'll be right back .
